Review

"Undoubtedly, this massive tome will become the reference manual for all forthcoming veterinary students and large animal practices, as its forerunner 'Blood and Henderson', did for me 40 years ago.

It covers all major farmed species and is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with General Medicine and the individual body's systems and Part 2 on Special Medicine covers infectious, metabolic, toxic and inheritable diseases. However, of particular interest are the sections on the pig, which have been written by our own Pig Journal chief scientific editor Prof. Stanley Done. There are exceptional reviews of the Porcine Reproductive Respiratory Syndrome (257 references), Post-weaning Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome (229 refs), Pleuropneumonia (167 refs) and Enzootic Pneumonia (a modest 136 refs). Respiratory diseases have been his lifelong work and the results are reflected in these outstanding sections. Enteric diseases have not been overlooked, with Ileitis (102 refs) Swine Dysentery (86 refs) and even Colitis (58 refs).

Other pig diseases and infections are broadly covered in the book and there is a useful Appendix (2) on reference laboratory values and uniquely, Appendix (4) on drug doses for pigs. The book is well indexed for finding out the relevant part or disease for the species in which you are interested.

It was particularly sad that the chief editor Otto Radostits died just before the publication of this book but it will be a lasting tribute to his amazing effort to bring all this information into just one book and is of excellent value." - Reviewed by David Burch for The Pig Journal Vol 59.

"The book is clearly laid out and, where possible, uses a standard format, well illustrated with figures and text boxes. Importantly for this sort of text, all the sections are well referenced, allowing the reader to easily identify key papers in situations where further reading is required. It is without a doubt the sort of book that all large animal clinicians should have access to for reference, and its cost is very reasonable considering the quanitity of the material provided." - Jonathan N Huxley, The Veterinary Record, August 2007

Format: Hardcover
It's really great! Mostly every disease you search you'll find in here, and with very updated informations. The only "but" I found is that is a really big and heavy book, so is not something you can carry around... But with this amount of information, it couldn't be any different!

Format: Hardcover
I mostly use this as a reference for cattle medicine but have found it very useful for sheep and pigs also. Each disease or condition has a handy overview box at the start that can get you thinking of other differentials. I bought it as a student and it was great for studying for exams, and I still use it regularly now.

This is one of the more popular farming texts we have -- and it gets real interesting when a rancher or farmer tries to convince us that they should be entitled to take it home for a few weeks! We keep it as a "reference only" text and at the rate of use, we may have to replace it in a year.
